Who is Psychosexual therapy for?
Today more and more individuals and couples are struggling to make sense of sexual issues in their personal relationships. Often, these concerns are not explicit ie. the couple or individual are angry, dissatisfied, resentful, afraid, with the state of the relationship. They are not getting what they want from each other and this build-up can make it very difficult to talk about.
When emotional needs are not met one of the first things that suffers is the sex life and people grow apart. Many factors may have evolved over time or have recently impacted the relationship such as 'performance anxiety' in men, illness, surgery, addictions, bereavement, trauma, abuse, the arrival of children, an 'affair', infertility, the list is long.
What is important for couples and individuals to understand is that sexual problems happen in response to something and are not usually located solely in the genitals!
